Woody Allen Is “Sad” For Harvey Weinstein

Harvey Weinstein’s years-long covert campaign to eventually become the Most Reviled Man in America has just about come to fruition. You can tell you’ve made it to the Creep Hall Of Fame when other famed creeps are expressing their condolences.

In an interview with the BBC, Woody Allen, the physical embodiment of everything not to do if you’re a parent, spoke on how “sad” the Weinstein mess is for everybody involved. Woody’s empathy extends to the man who more and more women are coming forward with truly heinous stories about – disgraced movie exec Harvey Weinstein. Rose McGowan, you have our permission to orb (that’s a Charmed reference) over to Woody’s place and emphatically kick him in the balls.

“The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved. Tragic for the poor women that were involved, sad for Harvey that is life is so messed up.

Woody, who has been accused by his adopted daughter Dylan of sexually molesting her as a child, should know about this sort of “sad” situation. He’s probably also experiencing a “whew, I dodged that bullet somehow” moment. Which is why he’s paying disingenuous lip service to Harvey’s alleged victims.

“There’s no winners in that, it’s just very, very sad and tragic for those poor women that had to go through that.”

But Woody continued on to demonstrate that he doesn’t quite get it. He sort of employed Harvey’s born of a different era bullshit excuse.

“You also don’t want it to lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself. That’s not right either.”

You might want to keep your winks to yourself, Wood. Woody’s estranged son Ronan Farrow is one of the journalists who investigated Weinstein, so Dad better watch his ass. Or Soon-Yi could be visiting his nebbishy ass in the pokey!

In other “Harvey Weinstein’s Downfall” news, the Academy has kicked his “well-dressed skin tag” (credit to last night’s SNL) ass to the curb. The Hollywood Reporter informs us that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have declared Weinstein as “someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues” and stripped him of his lifetime membership. The Academy’s board (which includes Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks) made sure to cover their asses and noted that this move was also about a stand against sexual harassment. This was probably some CYA in anticipation of questions like “um, wasn’t there literally hundreds of stories and rumors for literally two decades about this heinous creature?

We do so not simply to separate ourselves from someone who does not merit the respect of his colleagues but also to send a message that the era of willful ignorance and shameful complicity in sexually predatory behavior and workplace harassment in our industry is over.”

Meanwhile, Roman Polanski and Bill Cosby are still members…

THR also had an interview with Harvey’s brother Bob Weinstein. Bob, who is rumored to have been behind the outing of Harvey as an alleged sexual predator, referred to his brother as “indefensible and crazy,” and says that he wants Harvey to “get the justice that he deserves.

Bob, who describes the situation as a “waking nightmare” for him and his family, claims that he knew Harvey was a lech but didn’t realize he was “the type of predator that he was.

The members of the board, including myself, did not know the extent of my brother’s actions. I know him on a personal level better than anyone. It’s hard to describe how I feel that he took out the emptiness inside of him in so many sick and depraved ways. It’s a sickness but not a sickness that is excusable. It’s a sickness that’s inexcusable. And I, as a brother, understood and was aware as a family member, that my brother needed help and that something was wrong.

Bob is reportedly trying to salvage his and Harvey’s company, despite four members of the board of directors already having exited. There’s speculation that he’ll have The Weinstein Company’s name changed. Good idea, Bob.

    yes one woman described his back as big, and i assume hairy. that visual just puked it for me.

  2. Dina Strange

    Terry the perv. Yuk.

  3. Dina Strange

    you are right. he was outed because of an internal struggle between men at the top of the power pyramid not because women had enough.

    he is probably just the top of the iceberg and a scapegoat now, but the underlying structure of the Hollywood doesn’t change.

    Pedophilia, prostitution, drugs, corruption – the wormy foundation of the glamour, like a bunch of roaches under the red carpet and fancy gowns.

  4. Dina Strange

    amen

    I know I’m going to get us in trouble for going off topic…*gulp* https://uploads.disquscdn.c

  15. Sahweeet!! I will have to go find that & read up. Thank you!

  16. GothyMcGotha

    Great minds:)

    Agreed; it can have either sexual connotations or that of an in-joke. In which case, if the winker is referring to a joke and interacts with everyone that way, I don’t find it problematic.

  18. Ohhhh my! She’s beautiful 😻😻😻😻

    When you get into things like this I understand how “worse” has to be put into quotes for sure.

  20. David Abbot

    What I read didn’t mention any names except Spielberg and said there are some well known rumors, then he was randomly mentioned here.

    Where to begin with this mess? Gaslight is by no stretch of the imagination (except apparently yours) a romance movie; it’s a murder mystery.

    The Bronte sisters were ahead of their time and leagues above the insipid Jane Austen. Jane Eyre, Catherine Earnshaw, and Scarlett O’Hara were tough women who could stand up to any man. I’m not going to say anything about Rebecca because I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone who doesn’t know it, because it’s a mystery not a romance. I could go on..

    But most of all, if “mysogyny” is your favorite word, learn how to spell it.

    A female, 3 years old. I brought her home from Europe, where she was roaming the city streets. This is her and I in our flight back to Canada. https://uploads.disquscdn.chttps://uploads.disquscdn.c

    beat me to it

    also, what the fuck does winking have to do with rape?

    so women run around “being careful” and “not being slutty” and all these other rules we follow to try to keep out of the 25% who report getting raped.

    but ask for men not to rape people, and you get pedos who run freely in the streets saying, “what’s next, we can’t wink anymore?”

    so not getting to wink at younger women is totally on par with having to structure mad of your life around keeping safe from assault. totally.

    anyone who complains about “PC” or “witch hunts” I know 100% is gonna say something fucked up. if it’s a man who says shit like that, I know to get far away from him, because those are the ones who try to rub on you and shit.

  25. Of course, Movies are never a mirror of their own time and the mysogyny in those classic Hollywood movies is just fantasy. Gone with the wind, Rebecca, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and Gaslight are just great romances and the male leads are just so fucking charming. Ah, Mr. Rochester, imprisoning his mentally unstable wife in the tower; treating his adopted daughter with contempt because he hates her mother, whom he had no trouble taking advantage off while he was in Paris; and running off to marry the naive Jane Eyre whom he lied to from the very beginning. What a great romance. No mysogyny here at all. I mean, those feminists with their silly riots were just bored, right? There’s no mysogyny in Hollywood or our society because…oh wait a minute …
